Norwegian mass murder Anders Behring Breivik, who last year gunned down children at a summer camp, planned a more grandiose slaughter, including clerics and Amnesty officials, according to the London Telegraph.

Breivik murdered 77 people in his killing spree last July as part of his mad protest against Norwegian officials for not stopping what he sees as a Muslim takeover of the country.

His main target in the shooting spree was a Labor Party summer camp on an island outside of Oslo, but a Norwegian newspaper reported that it obtained documents of Breivik’s plans for a much worse slaughter. It was known he intended to kill others, but no details had been provided until now.

He divided his intended targets into three lists -- the most important one, in his view, including 12 people he viewed as “traitors," such as a Norwegian politician Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, noted for his international efforts for climate change.

Other targets included the Royal palace, officers of the government-led Labor party, Amnesty International and clerics.

"We have found that roughly equal amounts of bomb materials beyond what he actually used remained on his farm. It seems that he had plans for much more,”  said police prosecutor Paal-Fredrik Kraby.
